The medical syringe is a piece of medical equipment that can be used in Barotrauma. They are given to players with the Medical Doctor job by default.

Function[edit | edit source]

The medical syringe's function is to inject chemicals into a player's bloodstream, with the goal of treating several possible ailments a player may receive. Injecting a medicine into a player as oppose to having them take it orally allows the drug to be much more effective.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The medical syringe requires one hand to equip. Holding down the right-click (mouse2) button will aim the syringe in whichever direction your cursor is positioned. Left-clicking (mouse1) will then swipe the syringe in the air, injecting into the first player it comes in contact with. Note that the swing itself has a wide arc and can hit anyone standing around you. Alternatively you can grab bodies to lock your hands in place and then inject.

Medicine can be placed into a syringe by dragging it over the inventory slot which contains the syringe.
